i fitted a pod filter inside my air box and he first thing i noticed is improved throttle response and revving better on WOT. definitely heaps better that stock. mine is a v8. dont know if you get the same improvement on I6.

Who cares really each case maybe a bit different from the other, and theres always new news on different performance mods... for example my bf xr8 which had a panel filter, now has a pod with ram air supply. custom made by my imagination and its great the CFM has increased thus giving me more throttle response and more mileage fondly enough ;)

I'm interested to know what it takes to put the pod inside the airbox... I thought about getting a pod, but don't want it sucking hot air. If I put it inside the airbox then feed cold air from the bottom as well as stock induction, I think it could be beneficial?

i brought a $3 pvc elbow from bunnings & a airpod adaptor & mounted mine in the box & cut a 3"hole through bottom of box & got more pvc & ran it to front near bumper it seems to have worked well . i have felt a little increase in performance . :D

There've been a few punters who have added a second intake into the bottom of the airbox from the front bar and had good results - you just have to add some protective mesh to stop serious stones from getting up there depending on your design.

hii
when i had my xr8 i tried the pod without the box it went ok but once the engine bay would heat up in traffic the idle would hunt slightly so i put a k&n panel filter the went much better but didnt have that induction noise.

ive got the pod in the airbox in my 6.
with the home made cai made from a old au snorkle and two 2" flexable hoses and it works great.

just to see. when i put the std filter on and went for a run the car was lacking a little top end pull compared to the pod in the box..
